Vestige plugin missing

Having trouble with LMMS? Ask about it here.
I downloaded lmms-1.1.90 and compiled it. There were no errors during the cmake prebuild stage (except for three missing, optional libraries: carla, libpulse and libgig) and actual building.
Upon opening LMMS, Vestige was not present in the Instrument plugins tab.
I checked /usr/lib/lmms and, and were present.
I ran ldd on and it reported that was "missing" (it's path was hardcoded in as ../, I fixed that by creating a symlink and ran ldconfig.
After opening LMMS again, Vestige was still absent. What could be the cause of this?

You need wine, but the distro you use is also important, and annoyingly, so is your linux. I believe 'mint' has real issues still...
KX-studio has allegedly the one to use. At least, afaik that distro has the highest success rate.

Maby this is also useful for you?

If you still is stuck, please
post your:
* OS (pack+ver)
* hardware specification (ram & soundcard is the most important)
* lmms sound device chosen
Still stuck, I can't switch distros.

I have wine installed (version 1,8) and it was installed before I built LMMS.

Running LMMS from the terminal prints this:

Is that output al you see ?

Those messages can be ignored. I have LMMS on running on openSUSE, and there I see those lines too.

First message has to do with real timekernels, which I believe nobody uses anymore.

You are right, although I am not using it, KX - studio is a good distro build for music production.

After me talking to the right people though, on openSUSE it should not be a problem to install and run lmms either. :P
Okay! I found the fix. Funny thing is I found it while dealing with another issue. ZynAddSubFX Show GUI hanged LMMS, output from terminal revealed that a shared library ( couldn't be found.
So I created this script:

Code: Select all

Saved it in a folder in my PATH and ran it.
Now vestige shows up and the Show GUI button works.
